Here’s a really cool special effects video as well as all the tutorials that went into making it, all in one spot.

Ok I used more than a few tuts to make this one, each tut has been included in a little place to make it work. And if you want specific details as to which tut went where let me know, but I don’t think you’ll need that.

Here is the main tut, where the vid is based on:

http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/vfx/tracking-a-futuristic-high-tech-floating-interface-day-2/

Here are the extra components I used to create the rest:

http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/motion-graphics/a-beautiful-ripple-using-forms-audio-react/
http://ae.tutsplus.com/tutorials/motion-graphics/quick-tip-creating-additional-interface-elements/

With all these tuts, you should be able to create a better one than I did.

Plus they are really extensive so you should get the gist of it pretty quickly.
